Mid year favorite of 2012 at Access! Roland Pemberton aka Cadence Weapon was born with hip hop in his DNA. His father, Teddy Pemberton, a Brooklyn native and the muse for Cadence Weapon's acclaimed sophomore album, Afterparty Babies, was a pioneering college radio DJ and in 2010 was inducted into the Hall Of Fame during Canada's National DJ Awards, the Stylus Awards. He's credited for introducing hip-hop to Rollie's hometown of Edmonton, Alberta through his show, The Black Experience In Sound on CJSR-FM. Following in his father's footsteps, Rollie discovered he wanted to rap when he was 13. He first gained a grassroots support for his mixtape ''Cadence Weapon Is The Black Hand''. He soon followed up with his explosive debut ''Breaking Kayfabe'' (Also an Access favorite of 2006). Dirt City is a clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent that represents the culmination of his experiences. He applies an interesting approach to production using samples as a foundation for writing the album, then working with live instrumentalists to reconfigure his original compositions. Pemberton then turned the band-recorded tracks into samples for the album to achieve a listenable, honest approach to integrating a live band into his setup. ''I wanted to have a live feel, but I didn't want to sound like the Arsenio Hall band,'' says Cadence. ''I wanted to make it ambiguous between where the sample ends and the live band begins.'' A unique hybrid of psychedelic soul, old school rap and mutant disco; Hope In Dirt City is a groundbreaking achievement in hip-hop.
